endstop = power off?

Hi,

I'm not sure if this is supposed to be like this..

when the end stops are triggered.. it shuts down the arduino.. ie.. even can't detect it. It is supposed to be like this?

many thanks.

Sounds like your endstops are connected to - and + on your PCB. When you trigger the endstop you are tripping the fuse. Connect them to - and S(ignal).

Thanks Johnny, I've switched around the wires and now they are working!

Not sure if its because I bought the components from Netherlands, both the motor and endstop wire colours are different from the prusa manual! lol

Merry Christmas!

It's because you didn't care to compare the pinout of each connector and what each wire means. Currents and voltages don't care what the colour of their wire's isolation is, right? smiling smiley
